This Sunday 3rd July MOTAT is proud to be partnering with New Zealand Police to celebrate the 75th anniversary of women in Policing. This special event honouring women in the Police both past and present will include fashion shows of vintage and modern-day Police uniforms, demonstrations by the Armed Offenders Squad, Search and Rescue Team as well as the Dog and Maritime Units.
There will also be exhibitions of historical Police communication equipment, a display of MOTAT's collection alongside current Police vehicles and forensic imaging and fingerprinting activities. This will be a day full of family fun and eye opening activities as visitors experience first-hand how Police officers work in the field protecting our communities. Join MOTAT in celebrating these dedicated women in uniform.
And while we at Glory Days strongly believe there is far more to people than the clothing they wear, we have to take a moment to appreciate the style that the women in NZ Police had back in the day!
Could you ask for a more fashionable first intake?
Those boots! And the standard issue handbags!
Those boots again!
